Brad Williams' Bio

Pound for pound, Brad Williams is the funniest comedian in the country right now, and has

become one of the most in-demand comedians working today. Williams started doing

stand-up comedy as a teenager and has been touring successfully ever since, routinely

selling out prestigious venues all over the country and world.

Williams has parlayed his live performances into a multitude of stand-up television

appearances, including The Tonight Show, Dave Attell’s Comedy Underground, and

Jimmy Kimmel Live. His first one-hour special, Fun Size, was the highest rated special on

Showtime, and a year later, he followed that up with his second one, Daddy Issues, which

was even more successful than the first. His third special in three years was an uproarious

one, hosting some of the edgiest comedians in the country from the prestigious Montreal

Just For Laughs Festival. His last groundbreaking special on Netflix, The Degenerates,

garnered more huge ratings and rave reviews.

Also an accomplished actor, Williams has appeared on numerous TV shows and feature

films, including FX’s Legit, Sam and Cat, Mind of Mencia, Pitboss, a recurring role on the

Hulu original show Deadbeat, and memorable roles in a plethora of movies, including Little

Evil, produced by Scott Stuber (Ted), as well as the Netflix original Christopher Guest film,

Mascots, and most recently Reno 911: It’s A Wonderful Heist.

Recently, Brad became the first stand-up comedian to headline a Cirque de Soleil show in

their 30 year history, when he agreed to launch—and do a three month run of—their

newest show Mad Apple, at the magnificent 1200 seat New York New York Theater in Las

Vegas. The show became an immediate smash hit to rave revues, singling out Williams

for his incredible ability to captivate his audiences with his extraordinary performances.

In addition to stand-up and acting, Williams co-created and co-hosted one of the most

successful podcasts in the world, with friend and fellow comic Adam Ray, entitled About

Last Night, which was always a mainstay on the iTunes charts during their five year run.

Additionally, he is also a regular contributor with a series of incredibly funny appearances

on several national radio and podcast platforms, including KROQ’s Kevin and Bean Show

and The Adam Carolla Show.

Williams’ humorous and inspiring observations on disability, relationships, sex, and race

consistently win over audiences; proving anyone can overcome their shortcomings. His

high energy live performances frequently produce standing ovations from audience

members; which prompted the late Robin Williams to call him “Prozac with a head.”
